Everyone can work towards a daily routine without waste.
Discover these simple ways you can start reducing plastic waste!

Plastic production worldwide exceeded one ton per day in 2018. Disposable plastics account for half of global production. The first step to reduce these numbers is to reduce the non-reusable plastics in everyone's daily routine.

The three Rs have become a benchmark for languages and cultures. You can square and follow nine low effort tips to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

Bar soap and shampoo, solid face wash, mattifying serums, solid conditioner, and even shaving cream. Almost every lotion and cream can be replaced with a solid alternative that reduces plastic waste.

They are generally smaller, waste-free, and just as effective. The solid beauty and hygiene products free up counter space, help the planet and last for a much longer time. Bar soap and shampoo are much cheaper in the long run, and get through airport security without an itch every time.

Whether olive oil or laundry detergent, many household items can and should be purchased in bulk. When you can't find an alternative without plastic, there is a larger version that saves on packaging.

Wholesale purchase is also much cheaper and saves you time and gas since you will be making fewer trips to the store. If you know that you will need to buy more of the same product a couple of weeks from now, nothing will keep you from buying it all at once.

9 Easy ways to reduce your plastic waste

Those five-liter bottles of hand soap you bought in bulk may be a little too big to keep them on the tap. That's because you should use them to fill the containers you had previously.

Instead of buying new, fragile, wasteful dispensers every time, invest in a single good quality container and fill it when it runs out. If you feel smart, glass bottles make large soap dispensers with a small modification.

One thing you should not buy in bulk is food. Perishables, as expected, perish. But buying a few apples and oranges every two days does not mean taking them home in plastic bags.

Bring cotton bags for fruits and vegetables. Wrap the meat and fish in paper. And bring some glass jars for peas and cereals. You will see that everything fits well in that big shopping bag you are already using.

The lower the supply chain, the lower the environmental impact. You will see fewer plastic crates when you go to market than when you went to the supermarket.

Smaller local manufacturers tend to have less plastic waste than large grocery stores. When you can, get on David's side and buy local seasonal products. They are also much less likely to wrap fruits and vegetables in plastic.

That's why eco-conscious brands like Bam&boo ensure that all transportation is carbon balanced. By planting one tree a day, Bam&boo makes sure that you can have their toothbrushes, straws and cotton buds conveniently delivered to you in a sustainable way.

9 Easy ways to reduce your plastic waste

Disposable razors are as expensive as they are expensive. Buying a safety razor (or a straight razor if you want to shave an art) cut plastic waste to zero when you are shaving.

Instead of replacing the entire shaver head (or throwing it all out) you can only change the blade of a safety razor or sharpen a straight razor. A safety razor is also much less likely to lead to ingrown hair.

You should change your toothbrush every three months.if it is made from plastic, that is programmed waste.bamboo toothbrushes allow you to cut drastically on your plastic use.

You do not need to own something that you use occasionally. Instead of buying that hard plastic leaf blower, rent it or ask a family member to use theirs.

Ask yourself if you need to have exclusive possession of something before you buy it. If you do not, there is bound to be a short-term alternative.

You don't need, nor do you want, that little plastic toy you have for free at the theme park. The last tip is the easiest: say no when you are offered something you don't need, whether it's a pamphlet you'll throw out without reading or a plastic sticker for your laptop.
